Is there a "Good Penalty"?
Submitted By Rose Powers on Friday, October 31, 2014
Winnipeg Jets Hockey Poll
When is it okay to take a penalty?
• 78% To stop a sure scoring chance (185 votes)
• 3% While instigating a good opposing player (8 votes)
• 5% Never (13 votes)
• 14% When it involves swatting a drunk fan with his own wingtips (33 votes)
239 votes total

Basically a good penalty is one where the penalty is taken as a last resort when the other team has a clear scoring opportunity. Therefore, it was a sure goal and was better to take the penalty and let the PK unit do their job.

You know, I've always felt that taking penalties is a lot like speeding tickets. In certain places and at certain times you're more likely to get a ticket - and you know that certain people in certain vehicles can more easily get away with a warning. The same is true in hockey, and you have to factor that into your calculation.
